March 6th, 1997, David Nicholas was born in Los Angeles County. His grandfather, Tom Nicholas was visiting a client in Idaho. I was about 40 miles away visiting a client. I rushed (took two hours not because of traffic but because I got lost) over to wait and visit with grandmother Sylvann and father Tommy Nicholas.
July 10th, 1999, Tom Nicholas and I were attending the NAHC FMC in Hilton Head, South Carolina. A client (funny that it was the same client that Tom was visiting in 1997) suggested that we go peel and eat shrimp, and drink beer instead of attending that day’s programs. We watched the USA beat China for the Women’s World Cup on the bar’s TV and took a short bay cruise. While on the boat I got a call that Marisa Boyd was born in Sonoma County.
The first grandchild for each of us. Bless grandchildren everywhere.
